Episode 046: How to Talk to Your Daughter About Menstruation

featuring Robin LaCross

When you were young, did the women in your life speak to you about menstruation? Where did your information come from? Health class? Tampon commercials? Your parents? Did you know what to expect or what it might be like? Did the information arrive soon enough to prepare you?

Or were you sitting alone in the bathroom terrified you were dying? When it comes to being taught about menstruation, it seems most girls get the basics of what to do when the bleeding starts but no real information about what to expect, why and how it happens, or the power women can tap into during menstruation. When girls are given a greater understanding of their body and cycle, magic happens.

It can shift their perspective and outlook on their body, cycle, and life as a whole. Join me for a deep dive into how to talk to girls about menstruation, the how’s and why’s of menstruation, herbal remedies girls can use to help ease menstrual symptoms, and more. You’ll feel more confident having these conversations.
